Failure To Diagnose
A doctor's failure to diagnose an illness does not always equate to a medical negligence claim. Some disorders may have no symptoms, or may be extremely uncommon, or have extremely complex symptoms. However there are situations in which you will deserve compensation for your trauma.
Medical negligence claims made due to a 'failure to diagnose' commonly occur with regards to:
- Heart Attacks
These three are examples but there are many other occurrences of diagnosis failures. Diagnosis failures can lead to a patient having to suffer from their illness without any specialist treatment, experiencing unnecessary pain and suffering. Suffering from an illness without knowing what it is or how best to manage it is extremely stressful for the patient and their family. A doctor's failure to diagnose an illness can result in a patient having to undergo surgery which would not have been needed and in extreme cases a failure to diagnose an illness can lead to the patient's death.
When Is A Failure To Diagnose Considered Medical Negligence?
If a failure to diagnose has led to unnecessary complications and a worsening of your disorder which could have been prevented with a quicker diagnosis, you may wish to claim. Your claim is more likely to be successful if it is deemed that a 'reasonable body' of medical professionals would have been able to diagnose your disorder where your doctor has not.
